King, Experiment Station, University of Missouri. With the proper care, there should be no decrease in the itrowlh anil de- vi'lopment of the pigs after weaning lime. The weaning is often a time when the pigs stop grov.ing for a week or two. Hut if the right kind of feed is given to them, and they are eating well, there need be no de lay in development. There are two distinct methods of weaning the pigs practiced by our correspondents in the state. One ia to let the pigs run with the sow until she weans them, or until they wean themselves. This nifthod is not so generally practiced, however, as the other. Of course, this system makes strong pigs, but no stronger than if they are weaned earlier and given the right kind of feed. And It is much harder on the tows than if the pig are removed earlier. The other method practiced, and j l tie one used by sixty-one out of the i I seventy-two farmers making reply on I this question, is to remove the sow j afier the pigs have learned to eat well. The age of weaning varus from ix to fourteen weeks with our cor- 1 respondents wlth an average of nine weeks. The weight at weaning time aries from twenty to seventy pounds, with an average weight of about forty pounds per pig. When weaning time arrives, it is the practice to take the sow from the lot rather lhan to change j ihe quarters of the pigs. This leaves ihe pigs in familiar surrounding, and iirevents them from getting as rest-1 less as they otherwise would. The sow is turned back into Hie lot for a j short time every half day for a day I cr two. so her udder can be milked j out by the pigs to prevent its spoil , itig. The length of time between milk ; lngs is gradually increased until the sow is dr.y. This is most cases re-1 quires but a few days. Some funnels, I however, prefer to remove the pigs to j a different lot rather than change the j tow. At first only the stronger pigs ' are removed, thus leaving the weaker I i.nes to do the milking and have the ! benefits therefrom for a few days ! longer. The weaning should, under ! nil circumstances, lie thorough The feed during weaning and a ' short time afterward should be the j tame as before weaning, and consist i as largely as possible of soft feed, as the removal of the milk supply is tak- ' ing away a very soft and tmhitable food. The amount xif feed w ill need j io be increased somewhat, and most of our correspondents increase the oroportion of corn. For feeding pigs of this age. noth- j ing gives better results than skimmed ' milk, especially If fed with '.nine kind j of grain. A trial of different grains fed with skimmed milk wjis made al the Cornell Experiment station. The; results were very satisfactory, grains if about one pound per day being made in all the tests. Corn hn.i! and i skim milk makes a good ration. An experiment was conducted at the Wisconsin station which showed very, fctrikin.uly the poor results which are gotten from a straight con: ration compared with one supplenimied with other feeds. The gains were increased . more tlii'.n 250 per cent on a mixed ration over those obtained on a straight corn ration. If corn alone is fed to young pigs, it should certainly be fed in connection with ood pas ture, so as to give succulence r.nd pro tein. Aside from the actual food nutrients required, the necessity of an abun dance of exercise and fresh air is best supplied by a good pasture of clover, alfalfa, or rape. '. ' It is practically impossible to se-: cure as good, results with pigs with out pasture as with it. Numerous 1 trials have been made with fattening : hogs, proving the high value ot pas- ! ;ure for that class of hogs. How j much more so must be the value of J pasture to animals that ere young j and growing and need an abundance i of exercise! 1 Work Will Soon Start after you take Dr. King's New Life Pills, and you'll quickly enjoy their summer, by a boy 16 years old.

The agricultural pa pers of the country have published many articles both pro an! con, and the matter is more or less undecided in the minds of many. A man who has a large herd of cows "which may Have tuberculosis is likely to think there Is no danger. It is only natural, teeing that there are two wtaspreao. opinions, that he would hold tbe most practical one. The consumer, how ever, pays for a pure food product, and he has a right to know tbe facta. Some have claimed that bovine tu berculosis is not transmissible to the human. This Is proved to be untrue. Bovine tuberculosis Is transmi sible to man, If we are to take the reports of many experiments and records from arious parts of the world. Any num ber of cases may be cited to prove this. There are a number of characteris tics of the tuberculosis germs which s.re giving rise to arguments among rise io iirguiiiFiiia aiuum , , ,v -- - - - tc tint Hip most .if them nwnliitve been ftiiv;l by J.ytlm K. 1 'm!; sts.

This opinion nas been proved false, as a cow gave off germs ia her milk soon after they were in jected at her shoulder, she having no sign of the disease previously. A dairyman told me recently that there was nothing to the tuberculin test. He said that cows were tested once and found to react, "and again after six months they showed no sign of the trouble. It is true that in most cases the men who test for the dis ease are careless, and obtain unrelia ble and worthless results. The tu berwiltn test, however, when properly applied, is reliable. Any cow r acting to the test is dangerous. Her milk may carry the germs of tuberculosis to a large number of people, especial- ly infants.

Page, College of riculture, University of Missouri. Ag- It isn't the nature of a cow to fall off in milk production in summer any j more than at other times of tl.o year. In practice, on most farms, they ae- I uially do fall off considerably in "fly ; time." The flies are not the uuW of the falling off. as many believe. In fact, they have little to do with It. ac cording to investigations conducted by Professor Kckles at the Missouri Kxperlnient station several years ago. There are some more important causes, most of which can he reme- 1 died. If the cow had a luxuriaut posture, plenty of shade, and good water all the summer, she probably wot. Id pro duce as well during August ut an other month. The fact Is, tile pas- ! It. res become short, dry, and lust. iiiid she often has slim picking, to make :i living. She cannot, as she would '.ike to do, graze only in th.' cool parts of the morning and evening, but : the must hustle over the s'io;t grus. most of the day in order to fill her i.ig paunch. As a result, she is kept hot and tired from walking about in the hot sun. it is possible to improve the pas tures greatly by proper handling, but there will be some times ,vhen tho grass will not be so long and fresh as : Is desirable for the hard-worked milk ing cow. These times may be tided over by the use of some green crops which may be fed in the ham or in the shade of trees in the pasture.
